Pricey to stay on the island, but best way to get a glimpse of the behind-the-scenes life! Horse and buggy tour of the island a must! Can probably see most of it there in 2-3 full days. Wish I would have gone into the Grand Hotel (love the movie Somewhere In Time), but $$$ to even tour. If not healthy enough to ride a bike, at least count on walking lots. Iriquois Hotel is quaint, but friendly, and quite hospitable! Changed the sheets DAILY, and offered turndown service. The restaurant in the hotel, The Carriage House, was excellent! Bought a nice picture book of the island's history at one of the butterfly houses. Nice getaway!
